5 Spelling!!Today, we will be focusing on how to correct frequently misspelled words. Incorrect spelling not only is difficult to read, but can often times change the meaning of your sentences!!We will concentrate on the following items to better our spelling:HomophonesWords with vowel combinationsWords with suffixesWords ending in the f soundDifference between commonly misused words!
6 Review on Homophones!! What are homophones again?? Right!! They are words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings.Why would knowing about homophones be important for spelling correctly?? Is it important??You must make sure that you choose the spelling of the word that matches the meaning you want.
7 Let me show you before you do it!! FOLDABLEI am going to pass out a piece of paper.You must do the following before we get started:Fold it HOT DOG STYLE!!Cut THREE slits…making FOUR flaps. Only cut on one side of the paper.Label each flap in the following manner:Flap one: -ie and -eiFlap two: -fFlap three: suffixesFlap four: their, they’re, there and it’s, itsLet me show you before you do it!!
8 First Flap: -ie and -eiThe vowel combinations ie or ei are often misspelled. ***Remember the saying: i before e except after c, or when sounded like ay as in neighbor and weigh.Examples: receive and believeHelp me with these examples: (They will go in your foldable):1.) br____f2.) fr____ght3.) rec____ver4.) w____gh5.) dec____ve6.) p____rce7.) p____r8.) r____ndeer1.) brief2.) freight3.) receiver4.) weigh5.) deceive6.) pierce7.) pier8.) reindeer
9 Second Flap: -fThe f sound at the end of words can be spelled –ff or –ough.Examples: Stuff, enough; gruff, bluff; rough, tough
10 Third Flap: Suffixes (write small) A suffix is something added to the end of something else.Examples: Funnyfunnier. Heavyheaviest. Loselosing.1.) When a word ends in a consonant plus –y, change y to i when adding a suffix.Example: lazy + -ly = lazily. Happy + ness = happinessEXCEPTION: Most suffixes beginning with –i.Example: try + ing = trying. cry + ing = crying2.) When a word ends in –e, drop the e when adding a suffix beginning with a vowel.Example: move + able = moveable. drive + ing = driving.3.) When a word ends in –e, make no change when adding a suffix beginning with a consonant.Example: peace + ful = peaceful. brave + ly = bravely.
11 Practice Time!! 1.) cry (-ing) 2.) try (-ed) 3.) beauty (-fy) Can you help me?In your notebook, spend 5 minutes writing the correct spelling for the following words using what you just learned about suffixes:1.) cry (-ing)2.) try (-ed)3.) beauty (-fy)4.) move (-able)5.) late (-ly)6.) mystery (-ous)

13 Fourth Flap: Their, they’re, there and it’s, its They’re means they areExample: They’re studying EnglishThere refers to a placeExample: My car is parked over thereTheir is a possessive adjectiveExample: Their jacket is in the closetIts is the possessive pronoun; it modifies a nounExample: The mother cat carried its kitten in its mouth.It's is a contraction of it is or it has.Example: I think it's going to rain today. (Contraction of it is)
14 A Quick Lesson on Their, There, They’re What’s the difference between their, there, and they’re?
15 Affect vs Effect (in your notebook) The words affect and effect are often misspelled and misused.The majority of the time you use affect with an a as a verb and effect with an e as a noun.Affect with an a means "to influence," as in, "The arrows affected Ardvark," or "The rain affected Amy's hairdo.“Effect with an e has a lot of subtle meanings as a noun, the meaning "a result" seems to be at the core of all the definitions. For example, you can say, "The effect was eye-popping," or "The sound effects were amazing," or "The rain had no effect on Amy's hairdo."
16 Let’s look at more commonly misspelled words Can you explain why words like these would be misspelled often??To, too, twoYour, you’reToughRoughFriendsBelieveReceivedeceive
